        Hi Guys,
        Jai Jinendra !!!

        It's interesting to know about this law in largest
        democratic country, any shilpa i agree conversion is
        by heart. Frankly speaking lot of people in western
        countries are becoming veg and lot of jain childrens
        overseas becoming non-veg, alcoholic etc.

        Isn't that sad?

        Regards,
        sachin
